Cyclopentanone (CAS No: 120-92-3) is a cyclic ketone with a molecular formula C5H8O. It is also referred to as ketocyclopentane or adipic ketone. This clear, colourless organic compound is obtained by ketonization of adipic acid in presence of barium hydroxide at elevated temperatures. Cyclopentanone is a flammable organic compound characterized by a strong petroleum-like, ethereal odour. It is relatively stable and is insoluble in water. Commercially, one of the major application areas for Cyclopentanone is as an aroma chemical in perfumes industry. Moreover, Cyclopentanone also finds application as an intermediate in manufacture of a variety of chemicals. On the whole, Cyclopentanone finds application across a diverse set of industries such as pharmaceuticals, aroma & perfumes, rubber chemicals, pesticides industry - insecticides, among the others
Cyclopentanone Market: Drivers & Restraints
Global Cyclopentanone market is expected to witness a moderate single digit growth during the forecast period. This steady growth in consumption of Cyclopentanone is expected to be driven, primarily, by increasing demand for the chemical from developing economies spearheaded by China.The relatively more prominent application of Cyclopentanone is its use as an aroma chemical in perfumes & aroma industry. As such, steady growth of end use industry is expected to in turn drive the growth of global Cyclopentanone market over the forecast period. Also, the growing demand from electronics industry, where the chemical is used as a solvent, is expected to drive the growth of global Cyclopentanone market during the forecast period. Besides, growth in other end use industries such as rubber chemicals industry, insecticides industry, and increasing use in pharmaceuticals industry is expected to further drive the growth of Cyclopentanone market over the forecast period. On the flip-side, however, relatively weaker economic growth in major markets across the globe in the initial part of the forecast period is likely to impede the growth of global Cyclopentanone market in the same period.
